This Slogging thread by Storm, Utsav Jaiswal, Linh, Ellen, Beni, Hang, Marcos Fabian, and David occurred in HackerNoon's official #noonies-awards channel, and has been edited for readability.
Members of the HackerNoon team -- located in different parts of the world-- worked in unison to deliver over a thousand individualized awards to our internet family for Valentine's Day.
Below is what it looks like in the final few moments (hours) before a remote team finalizes two large internet campaigns.
This part of the initiative consisted of our developers deploying scripts to create individual awards and tech pages, updating the messaging on the websites, our designer making any final tweaks if needed, properly compiling/auditing email lists and CSVs, and making sure marketing copy for emails and blog posts reflected any and all final changes.
It further included a last-minute audit, to make sure thousands of newly created links worked as intended.
Plus, somehow it seems Linh managed to get a meeting in, in between there. Shook.
The below thread has been edited to a more reader-friendly size, initially, we had about 103 replies.
@Ellen @Linh, When should we display the winners on Noonies & startups?

Are you editing the blog post right now @Linh? Because I'll wait till you're done so it won't save my edits over yours. I'll review the other ones I wanted to get out today then.
